Homemade fast food

These little Mexican-style calzones are basically homemade fast food. They were good -- nothing fancy -- but good for a night when I didn't have much energy left. My family liked them. I'm sure you could make them Italian-style, with spaghetti sauce instead of salsa.

THE RECIPE:

3/4 lb. ground beef
1/2 package taco seasoning
1/2 c. chunky salsa
1 can large refrigerated biscuits, such as Pillsbury Grands
1 c. shredded cheese
Sour cream and extra salsa for dipping

Brown ground beef with taco seasoning. Drain any excess fat, then add salsa. Mix in cheese. Roll out biscuits into six-inch circles. (Use cooking spray so the dough doesn't stick.) Spoon in meat filling, fold over, and press edges together. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden. Serve with sour cream and salsa for dipping.
